As the Chinese New Year began on Monday, we decided to begin our Asian studies with the country of China. We have had many interesting activities.
We have colored Chinese New Year cards!
We have introduced a practical life transferring activity with Chinese bowls and a spoon.
Although we usually have individual snacks (not everyone is hungry at the same time!) we had a second, special group snack of sticky rice with chopsticks! The children loved using the chopsticks and seemed to enjoy the sticky rice!
We made Chinese lanterns which required coloring, cutting on the line, taping or gluing.
We created and colored the Chinese flag.
And the map of China.
We have also painted at the easel with a Chinese paint brush and tomorrow will be creating a dragon out of egg cartons as it is the Year of the Dragon!
